Miller Floor Speech on Health Care Reform
Oct 27, 2009 -
Madam Speaker, the constituents of the First District ofFlorida and the people across this country have said it loud and clear:
We DO. NOT. WANT. government-run health care.
Yet the majority party leaders have turned a deaf ear to theAmerican people and CONTINUE to insist on a public option.
Whether it be an exchange, a co-op, or single payer, whetherstates opt-in or opt-out, the fact is the majority party leaders – behindclosed doors – are crafting a final health care bill that would force a publicoption down our throats.
If a ROBUST public option is absolutely CRITICAL to provide healthinsurance coverage for more Americans, then why does this increased coveragenot occur until AT LEAST five years from now?
This health care reform bill is a farce and should be voteddown.
Americans do not want government-run health care.
